Up for auction is 6-pack of 2 year old juvenile Sarracenia leucophylla Conecuh National Forest, AL. These plants were grown for research and conservation purposes at Auburn University from seed collected in Conecuh National Forest. Seed was legally collected. These plants have been overwintering outside, so they are dormant.
Bidder beware: These plants were grown using hard water (ppm ~250) and suffered this past growing season. The size of the rhizomes is likely a result of this. I believe the substrate has been adequately flushed with rain water and the plants should recover nicely, but I cannot guarantee this.
Conecuh National Forest is a location I rarely see available in cultivation in the U.S., so here's your chance to add some unique specimens to your collection. The first image is of the plants the winning bidder will receive. The second image is a close-up of one of the 6. I have included additional pictures of juvenile plants of the same origin and age.
Starting bid is $5. Shipping will be $4 and covered by the bidder. Plants will be shipped bare root once confirmation of payment to NASC and shipping payment and information are received. USA shipping only. Sorry!
The winning bidder and anyone with questions can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through PM on this site.
Rhizomes of all 6 plants will be around this size, though some will be larger or smaller.
Some representatives of the genetic diversity of this location:
summit: Hey guys, I'm about to sow some seeds and I was curious to know what everyone thinks 'too hot' for Sarracenia seeds would be? Having them in the dome bumps up the temps a bit.

DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.

summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!

Skirt: Sarracenia can grow in Miami, right?

DirtyDivisions: Yep, Sarracenia will grow anywhere! In your toilet even...if have the proper amount of light etc...

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
